    Compelling intro music. Is it original?

    I like his grimaces as he ponders on the box, they seem very natural.

    Don't like the slow-mo as he reaches for the box, clashes with the style established so far.

    Ha! I like the box-pulling scene where he reaches from one end of the table to the other.

    Boy!!!! Great use (or lack) of music at the end when he lets out that yell!

    Funny short. Not sure about it being a Drama Fest entry. Maybe Comedy Fest?

    thanks for watching and for the feedbaclk.

    The music isn't original... its from the mehor de mariachi volume 1 or 3, called borrachia (i think).

    I believe that its drama mixed with comedy, leaning more towards comedy. Drama for me is a very loose and open ended word.

    In the future i'm thinking of expanding this short by tagging a scene on at the end or beginning, but im still debating because it might be ruined by any explanation of how the box got there or why. It might also be ruined by showing what happens after. It depends on how its done.

    I thought the music worked really well with the short. Added the right mood.

    you scream like a girl. But this one fits nicely into your cannon. You've developed a pretty specific sensibility, and it's nice. Now, when you're a big-time Hollywood director, don't forget the little people who made you stay up all night and get sick...

    I’d classify this as a pure comedy.

    The Mariachi music was sweet. Nice touch.

    The directing and script seemed to be an exercise in editing and composition rather than trying to tell a dramatic tale. I enjoyed it in that context. And the whimsical manner in which you presented it was endearing.

    One element was curious. Specifically, your choice to linger on the glass of water. Was it just because it was a cool shot ? What you might want to practice/ consider is weighting your images (both time on screen and visual highlighting) to see where they fit into the grander scheme of your communication.

    Beyond that, why is that chick so scared of the box ? Why, why why ? Her head in a box is puzzling, but she screams at the Russian doll ? She has strange priorities. Was that Russian vodka she was drinking ? That would explain it. I once drank too much Russian vodka and screamed at a whole bed full of stuffed animals...something about cheating on me…

    Thanks for the flick. Great fun.
